Bedbugs Staten Island Cockroach Prevention And Extermination
Staten Island – Cockroach Control and Prevention
and Extermination Tips
Take out the trash on a regular
Simply throwing your food-related
garbage in the trash can is a start, but roaches still have the
ability to crawl their way into your trash for dinner. Throw your
kitchen trash away on a nightly basis.
Always vacuum or sweep anywhere that
crumbs and food particles may fall
Whether you eat dinner in the dining
room, the kitchen, or your living room, vacuum or sweep up after
yourself frequently. Cockroaches persist primarily by hunting down
small deposits of food, crumbs that you may hardly even be able to
see. The more food particles on the ground, the easier it is for the
cockroaches to survive and multiply.
Occasionally empty and clean our
Your pantry and your cabinets are two
areas where roaches will be most common, because of the abundance of
food in these areas, as well as the increased incidence of food
particles. Clean your cabinets thoroughly, because even a sticky
speck of soda can be a source of nutrition for the roaches in your
home. In addition to cleaning your cabinets, also clean cabinet tops
and appliances such as ovens ant toasters which gather crumbs over
Wash your dishes the same night that
you use them. Do not leave dishes in the sink or otherwise unwashed
Roaches can appear anywhere while the
lights are off, and are very sensitive to noises and light. Leaving
unwashed dishes in your sink, out on your counter tops, or on your
kitchen table provides roaches with a smorgasbord opportunity.
Keep cooking supplies, food
ingredients, and leftovers in tightly sealed containers and bags
The worst thing that roaches can do is
invade your supply of food. It's easy to leave a bag of sugar or
cornmeal open when you aren't using it, but roaches will use this
opportunity to hit the jackpot for frequent meals.
Keep your pantry clean and make sure
that there are no messes inside of it. Also make sure that all food
and drink items are tightly sealed. By sealing off food items, such
as raw ingredients or processed food items like chips and pretzels,
you prevent your food from contamination and you prevent cockroaches
from getting a free and easy meal.
Eliminate sources of standing water
from your home
It is vitally important to ensure that
there are no reliable water sources in your home if you want to avoid
a cockroach invasion. Cockroaches are so not picky about their food,
that finding fresh water is actually tougher for them than finding
Investigate all around your home for
water leaks, focusing on your bathroom and kitchen. Tighten or
replace leaky faucets and avoid making a mess when you do dishes,
shower, or wash your hands. Make sure that you never leave standing
water anywhere in your home.
Seal cracks in the exterior and
interior of your home
One of the best ways to prevent a
Cockroach Infestation is to effectively seal your home off from them.
Roaches don't materialize out of thin air, so they have to get in
somehow, usually through cracks and holes in your walls and cabinets.
The easiest way to seal your home off
from pests like roaches is to find these small cracks inside your
home and fill them with silicone caulk. If you have wires and pipes
running from outside your home to inside, caulk or screen up these
areas to keep roaches from having an easy route inside. Sealing
roaches out will make it much easier to prevent or alleviate an
Invest in quality Roach Traps
Baited glue tracks are a simple and
highly effective way to eliminate roaches from your home. Place these
traps in any location where you have spotted a roach before. If you
live in a condo or apartment, these traps will also prove to your
landlord or exterminator that a problem exists in your complex, which
will help you protect your home further by ensuring that those
responsible for your building take care of the problem in every
apartment, not just yours.
Buy a can of Roach Spray
There are sprays that you can buy at
grocery stores and home and garden centers which are specially
designed to eliminate roaches and similar pests. Spray all of the
areas in your home that have shown evidence of Roach Infestation, and
also hit all dark corners in sensitive areas.
The important thing about using Roach
Killer is that you should be persistent in using it. Don't stop as
soon as signs of infestation have dissipated. Keep dark corners
treated in order to ensure that roaches don't return, especially if
you live in an apartment complex where your neighbors may still be
harboring the pests.
Fumigate your home with a Roach Bomb
If you have the time to leave your home
for a day or two, a Roach Bomb can be an incredibly effective way to
kill all the roaches and other pests in your home. These treatments
release pesticides which cloud your home, killing roaches, even in
your walls and cabinets.
As soon as you get home, go through
your home on a dead bug hunt. Roaches and other pests will eat their
own dead, and the dead roaches in your home may attract roaches from
outside if they aren't cleaned quickly.
